Gymnastics Tips and How-to's

Pigeon

 

Pigeon exercise is good for the semispinalis, posterior neck, splenius muscles, neck joints and scaleni muscles.
This exercise can be used to strengthen the muscles deep in the front of the neck. If these muscles are weak, they contribute to the poor posture known as poked neck. The exercise also stretches some of the muscles at the back of the neck which, if tight, can cause headaches.

Steps :

  • This exercise can be done either by sitting or standing.
  • Just keep your eyes looking forwards.
  • Without dropping your head down, pull your face in so that you make a double chin.
  • Now, feel the pull at the back of your neck while you hold for a count of 6.
  • This should be repeated for 10 times.
